The "Blended Family (What You Do For Love)" video is about celebrating the universal power of love that brings all kinds of people together. Today, modern families are full of boundless diversity. They are a beautiful mix of race, gender, culture, beliefs and perspectives living in unity, loving unconditionally. This video, shot by famed director Hype Williams, captures eight blended families from one home to the next. It's a moving black and white portrait of the many faces that make up a family.

"My new song "Blended Family (What You Do For Love)" is inspired by my family's personal journey to cultivate deeper understanding, compassion, support and love. Something to me that I hope we all together in this world remember right now," says Keys. "To me, the word 'family' has no singular definition and the modern family is made up of all kinds of beautiful people of different walks of life willing to put love first."

At this critical time in our history, the message of "Blended Family (What You Do For Love)" truly speaks to the need to love and understand each other and the song underscores the importance of: choosing love and compassion over hate and trying to build walls between us.

"Blended Family (What You Do For Love)" reflects the overall theme of Alicia's album HERE: urgent, intimate and musically daring. Offering an honest glimpse into what matters most to her, on her new album Keys shines a light on the sonic soulfulness and stories from New York, the city that raised her.
